Reviewed 21 October 2016

We had a room with a balcony facing the little active harbor. This small hotel is very cozy and the personal are very nice and service minded. We had a breakfast included many different dishes, more than we had expected from an Italian hotel.

Room Tip: High up and with balcony

Great food and excellent service in this busy Restaurant which is situated just behind the Port. The managed eleven of us without any problems and the general feeling of our climbing group was that this was the best food in town

Friendly and helpful staff.
Good location directly near the port and central beach.
Good quality room and en-suite.
Half board option available on arrival, very good value.

Noise from corridor was the only negative point.

There is no hotel parking, however all-day parking in a blue zone is only €6 per day. In the side streets it's free. The reception staff will help you work it out.

This is one of the few places in Cala Gonone that serves quality seafood for reasonable prices. We showed up twice without a reservation and they were very accomodating, but I recommend making a reservation to get the tables outside. The mixed grilled seafood plate was our favorite. Employees do understand English and they've been very sweet - although the service can be a bit slow at peak times.

Very nice few over the harbour. Room 211. The employees were very friendly and helpfull with our desires.
The restaurant on the ground floor which belongs to the building is a tourist trap!
Breakfast quality good, also nice few on the terrace. You can also see the sunrise over the sea. Cheers

Spent 3 nights here in a sea view room which we were satisfied with. It is next to the marina so easy for boat rentals or tours, walking distance to the super market, lots of restaurants, etc.

This is a 3 star hotel, clean, no frills, with tiny rooms but decent for the price. The blanket on the bed looks old and disgusting. They are cheap on the amount of shampoo and soap they provide. The light in the bathroom is really dim so shaving was difficult at night. During the day light came in through the window so in that case it was fine. Noise travels through the doors to the hall. We can hear people in other rooms and doors opening and closing. The hotel has put something under the doors to minimize this but still noticeable. I think the sea view is worth the extra cost. It can be a little noisy by 8am due to all the marina activity though. There is NO wifi in the rooms and free slow wifi in the lobby. I think it comes from the restaurant as when I ate there I think I had the strongest signal. The staff are friendly but I didn't find them very helpful or knowledgeable about area attractions. Breakfast was decent but ran out of basics like eggs by 9am.
There is no parking but for 6 euro or 1 euro per hour you can park in the marina lot next door to the hotel. You can purchase a couple of days at a time so you don't have to constantly feed the meter and you can come a go freely assuming you can still get a spot when you return. We have seen meter maids patrolling too. Down side is the machine only accepts coins.

We stopped on route to this port and had a starter between us and it was fantastic. We chose the 6 pieces of seafood and they gave us 9 and we loved it and just managed to finish it all. Service was quick and staff very friendly. Highly recommend. Grahame
